New Year cancellation

To explain the reasoning behind the cancellation of our New Years Day event. It has come to our attention that parkrun does not allow both a junior (2k) event and the 5k to take place on the same day. This policy is designed to protect children from taking part in both events.
We understand the frustration of runners looking forward to the event and thoughts that have been expressed but this is unavoidable.
As this falls on a Sunday, the junior event has the right to take place and the 5k needs to step aside.
Other runs are available on the day. Please check for start times as the other events as they will differ.
